The Boston Celtics again will be shorthanded Tuesday night when they visit the Indiana Pacers.

While the Celtics this season have proven capable of winning regardless of who’s available, injuries might be starting to take their toll. Boston has lost four of its past five games, all of which it has played undermanned.
The Celtics and Pacers are scheduled to tip-off Tuesday night at 7 p.m. ET.
